Want to add a 2nd H drive to the G5. I know its an ATA serial - any brand to recommend or avoid? I'm assuming its pretty much plug and play install wise?
Thanks!

Any SATA drive should work.

To install, there are screws mounted in the G5 box for the purpose - these are metal screws with a extrended plastic screw head - they look like little mushrooms. After fitting them to the hard drive, it slides into the spare hard drive rack. Then you just fir the SATA power and data cables and away you go.

Regards
Francois

sounds simple - as I HOPED it might (but you never should assume, so I thought I'd ask!)
I plan to get a maxtor SATA 300G 16ms model
thanks
Francois!!
